    Re: Adjusting to a World Without Quickloads

    I remember in an earlier thread there was information that Velvia 50 (and some other films) was being changed from 10 sheet boxes to 20 sheet boxes. Hopefully that is what is going on rather than the film itself being discontinued.

    That is about loose sheets. QL always comes in boxes of 20.

    I'm not really too sad since Quickload & Readyload were never made for 8x10 & 5x7 anyway.

    Re: Adjusting to a World Without Quickloads

    Well, I've been using Quickloads for a long time and really liked them. Love Fuji Acros. But I apparently missed the 'memo' about the Readyload/Quickload discontinuation!!! Thus I never stocked up. What a mistake! So.. I am back to loading holders and carrying more weight in terms of all those holders. But, the good news is,( like others have mentioned), it is nice to have some other great films again to use (always been a big fan of FP4).

    Don't suppose anyone out there would know of a source for more Quickloads??--probably a dumb question right now--I mean who is going to give out that info if your hoarding your own stock??

    Yes, I know. I was responding to the post before mine inquiring about the 10 sheet box of sheet film being listed as discontinued on B&H.

    #5 - Get a 6x12 rollfilm back and use medium format 120 rollfilm.

    Anyway, I have stocked up on some great condition used Linhof double darks 4x5 holders, and I suppose when my current refrigerator content of Quickloads and Readyloads runs out, then I will get regular loose 4x5 film.

    Ciao!
